2.3 Identifying Yourself as a Twilio Build Partner. If your participation in the Program meets the qualifications described in the Program Policies (each qualified partner, a “Logo Partner”), Twilio may provide you with a graphic image that identifies you as a Program participant (the “Twilio Build Partner Logo”), which we may modify from time to time. Twilio may also assign different badges based on the partner tier level (“Program Tiers”) a Logo Partner achieves (each a “Partner Badge”).
As a Logo Partner, you may use and display the Partner Badge that corresponds with the Program Tier that Twilio has designated for you. Specifically, you will have a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, revocable license to display the most recent version of the Twilio Partner Program Logo and/or Partner Badge on your websites and your offline materials (e.g., in any printed material, mailing, or other document) to identify your participation in the Program. Any additional uses of the Twilio Partner Program Logo or Partner Badge requires Twilio’s prior written approval.
It is important that you may not modify your Twilio Partner Program Logo or Partner Badge in any way, and that you may not transfer, assign or sublicense your Twilio Partner Program Logo or Partner Badge to any other person or entity. When using the Twilio Partner Program Logo or Partner Badge, you must also follow Twilio’s guidelines at https://www.twilio.com/legal/trademark, as those guidelines are updated from time to time.
Twilio may revoke your license to use your Twilio Partner Program Logo or Partner Badge at any time by giving you written notice. Twilio reserves all rights in the Twilio Partner Program Logo and Partner Badges and related intellectual property rights. Except as expressly described in this Section, Twilio does not transfer or license any additional rights to the Twilio Partner Program Logo and the Partner Badge, or related intellectual property rights.
